Holiday Event Brings Cheer and Empowerment to our Community

By Ilana Cookler, N Street Village Development Assistant

It truly is the most wonderful time of the year —
with holiday joy and cheer filling our community!

On December 14th, N Street Village held yet another successful Gift for Mom’s event hosted by Heidi Gauthier and Ilana Cookler in the Volunteer and In-Kind Office. The annual event collects gift cards and distributes them to residents and clients. With their chosen cards, each woman is able to shop for her family and select the perfect holiday gift for her loved ones.

The gift cards donated to N Street Village supported over 65 woman who will purchase holiday gifts for over 250 children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. It is because of amazing and ongoing community partners (like YOU!)  that we are able ensure the holidays are extra special for the families of women who participate in our programs.

On behalf of the women of N Street Village and the Volunteer and In Kind Office, we thank you for donating your time, talent, and treasure to support our community during a time when means so much.
